Protracted SSRI Withdrawal

If you have managed to withdraw from an SSRI and are still experiencing some side-effects or withdrawal symptoms, we'd like to hear from you.

 What is Seroxat?

Seroxat is a second generation SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitor). SSRI's work by inhibiting serotonin re-uptake transporters thereby increasing serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is a chemical which affects the mood. By boosting that chemical the patient should feel better.

Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, Seroxat was first licensed   in the UK on 11th December 1990 and was re-licensed on the 9th January 1998.

Seroxat's original licence was to treat episodes of mild to moderate depression. It is now licensed for the short term treatment of symptoms of depressive illness.


The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHA) have compiled a Questions and Answers Document on Seroxat.
